* AntiHero: Jango Fett is a Type V. He's only in it for the money, never claims to be a good or just guy, and often ends up fighting and killing even innocents and security guards. To be honest, he and Montross in the end are NotSoDifferent.
** However, Jango probably ends the game as a Type IV, with [[spoiler: Roz's dying wish for him to find something to live for besides money inspiring him to include Boba's creation as a condition of becoming a clone template]].
** On a slightly more optimistic note, Zam Wesell probably qualifies as a Type IV. Her motives are more or less the same as Jango's and she does betray him, but gets to make up for it by saving him from Vosa. Roz is more of a Type III, running a low life criminal hideout and scamming credits off of Jango. However, she genuinely cares for him and helps him throughout the story despite being well aware of the risks.


Added DiffLines:

* NominalHero: Jango Fett mostly kills unsavory types like mobsters and pirates, he has ''some'' moral standards compared to Montross, and the main antagonist of his quest is far more evil than he is... and that's about it. He's only in it for the money, never claims to be a good or just guy, and often ends up fighting and killing even innocents and security guards. To be honest, he and Montross in the end are NotSoDifferent. However, towards the end Jango does get another small redeeming feature when he remembers [[spoiler: Roz's dying wish for him to find something to live for besides money inspiring him to include Boba's creation as a condition of becoming a clone template]].
** On a slightly more optimistic note, Zam Wesell probably qualifies as a softer version. Her motives are more or less the same as Jango's and she does betray him, but gets to make up for it by saving him from Vosa. Roz is more of an UnscrupulousHero, running a low life criminal hideout and scamming credits off of Jango. However, she genuinely cares for him and helps him throughout the story despite being well aware of the risks.


* CatchPhrase: "Dead or alive?"

to:

* CatchPhrase: "Dead or alive?"alive?" Also functions as ArcWords used by various characters throughout the game.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: [[Creator/ClancyBrown Montross]] tells Jango [[{{Film/Highlander}} only one of them will get to claim the prize]].


* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the bounties you can catch in the second level, the protocol droid TC-9D0, is wanted by the special branch of the Senatorial Guard for having "sensitive information" about the corrupt Twi'lek Senator Connus Trell, who plays a role in the games sixth level.

** It is likewise impossible to actually collect the bounty on Meeko in the first few stages--you can tag him, but it's absolutely impossible to catch him on foot due to the games scripting. The hovercraft he steals is immune to your blasters as well. You have to destroy his starship at the end of the third stage to catch him in-story. However, you ''can'' catch him dead or alive in the second stage of Oovo IV (although you'll get a ''lot'' of credits if you capture him dead).

* HypocriticalHumor: When talking with Jabba, Jango states that "Discretion is his specialty". Note that this is just after he's killed a crooked Senator by dropping him from a window, all but destroyed the prison on Oovo IV, blown up several armored vehicles, and blasted his way through countless armed thugs.

* TheBully: Yeah, Montross, being a sadistic BloodKnight sure is fun... until it's your turn to be the victim. [[spoiler:After Fett nonfatally wounds him in their final fight, Fett leaves him at the mercy of some equally sadistic Bando Gora cultists (as payback for Montross's own torture-murder of Roz); cue AintTooProudToBeg.]]


* SuitUpOfDestiny: Performed in a minor MomentOfAwesome by Jango Fett. After being captured and tortured by a Dark Jedi, he's rescued by Zam Wessel and, once he drives off the Jedi and checks on the injured Zam, Fett has a badass Suit Up scene before he finishes the hunt.

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Jango has no qualms against using his most-despicable enemies' own brutality against them. Examples include [[spoiler:Gardulla the Hutt (she tries to have him EatenAlive by her pet Krayt Dragon; he returns the favor by pushing her into the same pit)]] and [[spoiler:Montross (he tortures and kills Roz; Jango returns the favor by leaving him at the mercy of some CruelAndUnusualDeath-happy cultists)]].

* BigBad / BigBadWannabe: Komari Vosa is the former for purposes of the game, but the latter in the saga as a whole. She leads the Bando Gora, a powerful cult with connections to powerful players in the galaxy's underworld, and the death sticks Bando Gora is selling in the game would addict new people creating a flood of new recruits. She's dangerous enough that Darth Sidious considered her a threat to his plans and ordered Dooku to kill her. Nonetheless, the ending makes it clear that Vosa's longterm plans, whatever they were, had no chance of succeeding as Dooku knew where she was hiding and could have gone and killed her at any point he wished. She only survived as long as she did in game because Dooku was using her as a target to recruit a template for the clone army.



* TheDreaded: Bando Gora is feared by almost everyone in game. Rozatta states that every bounty hunter whose gone after them in the past has died. When breaking into Oovo IV, Jango is told that nobody on the prison even wants to mention Bando Gora after a bounty hunter who was lucky enough to survive a failed mission against them, and was terrified by what he saw, was dragged off with only a piece of him left behind.



* GreaterScopeVillain: Darth Sidious, naturally. He's seen in the opening ordering Dooku to deal with Vosa as she is a threat to his own evil plans, but doesn't appear in the game outside of that. Dooku himself is this on a lesser scale. Killing Vosa is Jango's goal, but Dooku was the one who trained her and put the bounty on her.



* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Montross]]

to:

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Montross]]Montross is torn to pieces and eaten by Bando Gora cultists.]]
* LargeHam: Montross, being voiced by Clancy Brown and very little restraint of any kind was applied in the role. Vosa is no slouch either, showing that the hamminess of an evil Force user isn't limited to the Sith.
* LightningBruiser: Vosa can dish out a lot of damage and moves faster than Jango, so simply trying to back away from her won't keep Jango from getting hit.


Added DiffLines:

* MrExposition: Roz's main role, aside from being Fett's MoralityPet and the PluckyComicRelief, is to provide exposition on Jango's targets and what he needs to do each level.


Added DiffLines:

* PluckyComicRelief: Roz. She provides the bulk of the game's comedy with her various quips.


Added DiffLines:

* ShootingSuperman: Zam attempts to kill Vosa with a blaster pistol. As usual, shooting somebody with a lightsaber proves a bad idea as Vosa reflects her shots back at her. Can occur in the fight with Vosa if Jango shoots at her the wrong time, the trick is to only shoot her when her lightsabers are down at her sides, otherwise she will deflect Jango's shots back at him.


A mysterious cult, the Bando Gora, is wreaking havoc in the galaxy. Its members are distributing a dangerous variation of [[FantasticDrug death sticks]], which turn users into [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mindless devotees]]. The leader of the cult, the fallen Jedi [[AxCrazy Komari Vosa]] has become a threat even to [[BigBad Darth Sidious]]'s plans, so he orders his disciple [[TheDragon Darth Tyranus]] to take care of her. So he decides to hire several bounty hunters, offering a large reward for the head of Vosa. Soon, Jango Fett and his rival [[TheRival Montross]] start their hunt across the galaxy.

* HopelessBossFight: In the third Tatooine level, Jango has his gear stolen by Gardulla and is thrown into an arena with a Krayt dragon and two Gamoreeons. The latter are tough to fight since your only weapon is your fists, and you have absolutely no chance against the massive Krayt Dragon, whose stomps alone will knock Jango off his feet, and kill him instantly if he even tries to get close. Your only option is to use Jango's torch to escape through a nearby grate. Later on, you fight the same Krayt Dragon in Gardulla's throne room, but since Jango has all of his gear back by then, the playing field is evened and Jango successfully kills it.
